What does leadership mean to you?

By: Renee Kim, MSW, LCSW, OCADSV Equity and Access Coordinator

In the world of domestic violence and sexual assault advocacy, there are plenty of opportunities for leadership and sometimes your job title matches and other times not, what is most important is that you feel valued and respected for the job you currently hold at your agency.  You do not have to have the word director, manager, or supervisor in your job title to be a fabulous leader.  I define leadership by actions matching your words in the work place.  Many of us internalize messages we hear from our families, friends, and community around us to define ourselves and that can be either a positive or negative experience. If you identify yourself from a traditionally marginalized community you have other barriers to equity and access that are seen and unseen.
